Default Servos for Whiplash

What are you guys using? I like Hitec's and was figuring on using the 945MG for the elevons and a 425BB on the throttle. Any suggestions? Are there any lighter servos with similar torque specs (107 in/oz) that don't cost a fortune? The 945MG are about $39 each.
Thanks!

I have a Sport Jett 46 that I plan on using on a temporary basis. I'd like to get a Jett Fire 50 by the end of the year, but I have other projects I'm working on right now.
I'm not sure how "extreme" it will be with the Jett 46, but it will certainly be the fastest thing I've ever flown.

Wow, just looked up a price on the 8411 servos... Wow $105 each. A little more than I planned on spending right off the bat.

U need to go for the very best servo you can get. The Jet Fire 50 is going to push this thing into the 200+ range. Lots of stress on those elevons. Don't skimp, you will regret it. Trust me!!!
